Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of defensive midfielder Etienne Capoue for a transfer fee that’s reported to be £8.6million.

The 25-year-old Toulouse footballer paves the way for Scott Parker to exit the club, presumably to Queens Park Rangers

Capoue is a France international who has made 174 league appearances, scoring 13 times in Ligue 1 for Toulouse and was named in the league’s Team of the Year in 2012 alongside Hugo Lloris.

The defensive midfielder, who can also be employed at centre-half, has represented his country at Under-18, 19 and 21 level as well as earning seven full international caps, scoring once.

    Another big miss by Arsenal. Wenger should have these French guys on lock down. As much as I hate the spuds, I tip my hat to them on a great transfer window.

    You know what Spurs need? A midfielder.

    Smart signing from Spurs. They are addressing the need at holding midfield that was highlighted when Sandro went down and their Champion’s League bid crumbled.

    • np says:

      Good player but was a midfielder really more pressing than a defender? Tottenham are stacked in midfield. They could play 2-7-1 with the number a decent midfielders they have.

      Tottenham has spent big this year…i don’t know where they are getting $ from
